Not in the slightest way was your restoration thread or your results boring. Far from it.
Many of us learn things and take inspiration from even the smallest repair jobs and the big ones...yours included.

Any resto threads I read have always something new and exciting. This one is nothing short.
I also enjoy reading stuff over and over and this is a place for it. All good articles always available .

So after what seemed like an eternity waiting for the registration documentation to come through then getting a licence plate I have had my first ride today :D

First off everything worked exactly as it should absolutely no issues.

I had intended taking it very easy for the first ride but then that NOISE! it turns your character into a vicious animal of some form, enormous fun.

Overall the bike rides and handles like a modern bike, worlds apart from my other 1970's bikes. Hard to believe there is only a few years between them. It is also very comfortable.

To say I am chuffed is an understatement :D :D :D

Great to hear the first ride went well.
I am sure if you explain to the cops it was the NOISE that made you speed, he will let you off. :whistle:
